Who’ll Be The Next North West? The Top 8 Reigning ‘It’ Babies Of 2015

Let’s review the new crop of It babies based on their parents’ status, talent, wardrobe and wealth, rating them on a scale of 1 to 5 silver rattles — the more rattles, the greater their potential following. (Combined worth of the couples was compiled from celebritynetworth.com.)



Parents: Jessica Biel, 32, and Justin Timberlake, 33

Combined net worth: $193 million

Due: Sometime in April

Sex: Unknown (to us, anyway)

Prospects: Expect this thespian/musician couple’s first baby to have sizzling good looks. Could this be a future model for daddy Justin’s clothing line? Or the star of “Chainsaw Massacre XX”?

Rating: 3 rattles


Parents: Blake Lively, 27, and Ryan Reynolds, 38

Combined net worth: $61 million

Arrived: Dec. 31, 2014

Sex: Female

Prospects: The first child born to these good-looking thespians is bound to start us gossiping — in a good way, of course. With any luck, Violet will flower into a strikingly beautiful girl.

Rating: 4


Parents: Kate Middleton, 33, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William, 32

Combined net worth: $41 million plus Buckingham Palace and some additional land in England

Due: April

Prospects: Be prepared to bow down when the new prince or princess crawls into the building. The couple said that if they have a girl, they’ll name her Elizabeth Diana Windsor in honour of the late Princess Diana.

Rating: 5 (hey, they’re royals!)


Parents: Ashlee Simpson, 30, and Evan Ross, 26

Combined net worth: $28 million

Due: Unknown

Sex: Unknown

Prospects: The couple reportedly filed a request to change their surname to Ross-Naess, incorporating the last names of Evan’s mother, Supremes diva Diana Ross, and his late father, Arne Naess. It will take a pretty cool baby to live up to the hype of that hyphenate.

Rating: 2


Parents: Jennifer Love Hewitt, 35, and Brian Hallisay, 36

Combined net worth: $20 million

Due: Later this year

Sex: Not yet revealed

Prospects: This is baby No. 2 for the actors, whose daughter, Autumn James, they nicknamed “the happy Buddha.” They’re keeping this birth low-key, which is probably the best for baby — and to keep whetting the public’s interest.

Rating: 2


Parents: Benedict Cumberbatch, 38, and Sophie Hunter, 36

Combined net worth: $15 million-plus

Due: Couple’s keeping mum

Sex: Mum again

Prospects: Considering the British pair’s acting careers will take them across the pond now and then, their baby will be doubly blessed. They may want to phone the Beckhams for some input.

Rating: 3


Parents: Shakira, 37, and Gerard Piqué, 27

Combined net worth: $250 million

Due: No word yet

Sex: See above

Prospects: Hips don’t lie — this could be one bouncing baby, on the soccer field, on the dance floor and in the recording studio.

Rating: 4


Parents: Keira Knightley, 29, and James Righton, 31

Combined net worth: $50 million-plus

Due: Unannounced

Sex: Ditto

Prospects: Cumberbatch’s “Imitation Game” co-star wisely refrained from drinking at the Moët British Independent Film Awards in December, which bodes well for her baby (no bottoms up except when it’s diaper time). He’s a musician; could be a nice combo.

Rating: 3
